Memcached is a popular caching platform, which can boost the speed and the performance of your Internet sites tremendously in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if a customer searches for a given product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be completed considerably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for e-commerce portals, as anytime a specific page is visited, the application sends a database query to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Web Hosting

The Memcached data caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each web hosting service offered by our company and you will be able to start using it the moment you activate it, since the extension that it needs so as to work properly is already present on our cutting-edge cloud platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every hosting plan and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-heavy site with a large-size database may need more memory to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so if you wish to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any moment with a couple of mouse clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the content caching platform’s setup requires a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to increase the loading speed of any script-driven website, including those that are based on famous web-based applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with each VPS server that we offer on the condition that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the full power of this memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for numerous Internet sites, no matter how popular they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading your VPS server. The caching system is suitable for script-based software apps such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom app. Shortly after you activate Memcached, it will start storing info and you will perceive the enhanced performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you order any of our Linux dedicated servers and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform by default and you can activate it for any Internet site that you host on your server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching info as users access your site, so you will notice the effects of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the caching platform for numerous websites or for an extremely large Internet site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will permit you to enhance the load speed of any database-driven site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to enhance the performance of your dedicated server.
